A piece about the mobility of unconsciousness, of nature guiding us. About the natural instinct that leads us from the dark of night towards a possible sun. About the bubbling of our cells as they generate the necessary anger to fight against our disappearance.

This means dancing against the bite of time that afflicts/forces us, it means being pagan and sorcerer, tarantella and tarantula, prophet and martyr. The bewitched body – as though an irreverence to fatality. Possession to dispossess death of its rights.

We must all sail blindly towards the sun and become sextants so that our primary migrations finally capsize.

In Shape : a black laquered dance floor, a ballroom!

It’s writing : a geometric score constantly renewed, a space in perpetual motion.

It’s dance : a movement, an arm that ceaselessly bends.

It’s music : the live soundtrack is composed by François Caffenne from the real sounds produced by each planet in the solar system and the sun. It will retrace a musical epos (rock, twist, electro and disco).

Tropismes will be radiant, heady … and bewitching! A danse that calls out to you, that teases you. Radical and non-fundamentalist.
